I'm building a directors reel and bit newbie.
anyway, an editor working with sent me back footage on mini DV.
I'll have to import it to computer via a camcorder.
I have on my computer Final Cut Express HD as well as Quick Time Pro.
What is the easiest way to do this and what is procedure? thanks!

Plug camcorder into computer via FireWire.
Open FCP.
Open "Log and Capture" window.
Capture your clips.

If you need more basic FCP instruction, go to the following link and ask:

The FCP manual is a great resource, too.

[kevin c.] "so you definitely think that FCP express is better route than Quick Time Pro?"

Others have experienced serious problems trying to edit using Final Cut Pro video files that were originally captured using Quicktime Pro. I can only assume that Final Cut Express would be a similar situation.

If it's on the midiDV, it's not in any particular computer format.
Tapes hold footage, not files.
Just do as the earlier posts suggested.
